Taksony of Hungary
Taksony's policies were a change from the previous habit of the Hungarian leaders of conducting rapid raids on neighbouring countries, as he was probably present at the Battle of Lechfeld, where the Hungarian army was defeated and lost its leader Bulcsú. Relations with the Byzantine Empire progressively deteriorated, possibly due to progaganda from the Holy Roman Emperor Otto who depicted the Hungarians as ungoldy. In the second half of his reign Taksony increasingly pursued campaigns against Byzantine Empire. Although Taksony asked the pope to send a bishop to Hungary (a request which was thwarted by Otto), he didn't follow an open policy to the spreading of Christianity within his realm.
